NorCal Preseason All-State: 

7.22 60yd, 80 OF, 88 EV

6-0, 190 squared and projectable frame with current strength in the core/lower half. Open stance with high hands and wider base; limited wasted movements from lower half with slight hand load and strong blocking in front leg. Easy and quick barrel through the zone showing ability to stay inside the baseball and on-time has he worked gap-to-gap with carrying line drives (88 EV). Good feet for the middle of the OF and ability to move through the ball in time; high glove side and longer arm swing produce firm throws to the bags (80 OF).

Fall tournament - Uncommitted; There are few uncommitted centerfielders in the region with the raw physical tools possessed by Weitherspoon. That wide range of tools was on full display in this game. On a windy and sunny day, he made numerous (4-5) players in centerfield that were borderline WOW plays. He took some routes that were direct and led him right to the spot deep in the gap. He took some routes that while not perfect, allowed himself to show his make-up speed and range. He also showed the ball-hawking nature of a true CF (with a sure glove) while ranging to darn near straight-away RF to make a catch when his teammate didn't see the ball. He closed on the ball both in front of him and behind him. Weitherspoon also possesses an arm that plays in CF and could tick up to a RF type arm with some work (we saw 80 mph OF throws earlier in the summer). Offensively, swinging a wood bat, he showed power to the LF gap and displayed that he sees the ball well. He can occasionally lose the barrel a bit below the ball and will have to make adjustments to cover the outer half better, but has the bat speed and strength to be an impactful middle of the line-up presence. His ability to get an extra base going 1st to 3rd was also displayed. Two walks, a double (on a CB) and a K vs slider (he saw it and was on it, it was just a good pitch) showed quite a bit of who he can be as a hitter. The tools are all present, both for college and pro ball at some point.

Bay Area Open - Physical large frame with athletic build showing wide squared shoulders and easy athletic actions (7.13 60 yd); passes the eye test. Crouched, opened stance with even high hands and a high back elbow. Quiet front foot closing to wide base with hands lifting and working back under control; really strong turns through the middle of the body hitting over firm front leg pushing him behind the baseball. Loose and easy swing on level path with lift out in front of the plate; quickness in the barrel staying through the zone for a long time as he drove hard line drives from gap-to-gap (86 EV). Easy athletic actions in the OF with strong first steps able to work to stay behind the ball with agility laterally; type of actions that fit in the middle of the diamond. Long arm with high release having lofted carry on throws to bases (80). Strong base skills with very good athletic actions suggesting more growth in the tools in the near future.
